Nothing But The Truth

Nothing But The Truth

" My daughter was given this book as a Christmas present. She read it in 2 days (a clue that she liked it). I picked it up a few days ago and finished it quickly as well." ---Michelle


- "This is a great book in an innovative style. It's one of those great stories that heavily uses your own perspectives to color your reading of the book. As a student, I could understand the protagonist's position, and as a teacher, I knew why she did what she did. I recommend this book to literature circles of all ages, because at any age this book is something to talk about." ---Celeste


- "Avi is one of my favorite writers. So this book is presented like a file for a crime. This even happened at this time and place. There is really no narration. No persuasion. Just a very stark, neutral telling of events."

---Lara

Facts and Interesting Details on the Author

Avi was born Edward Irving Wortis in 1937 in New York City and was raised in Brooklyn, New York. His twin sister called him Avi, and the name stuck. Avi had a learning disability called dysgraphia, which caused him to reverse or misspell words, but nonetheless he was determined to be a writer. He first tried to be a playwright, and began writing for young people after his son Shaun was born.

Avi says, anyone who would want to become a writer or author, listen to this advice:

"I believe reading is the key to writing. The more you read, the better your writing can be."

---Avi


"Listen and watch the world around you. Try to understand why things happen. Don't be satisfied with answers others give you. Don't assume that because everyone believes a thing it is right or wrong. Reason things out for yourself. Work to get answers on your own. Understand why you believe things. Finally, write what you honestly feel, then learn from the criticism that will always come your way."
